http://gonecity.blogspot.comA selection of photographs from John Sevigny's decade long 'visit' to Mexico, will make is Midwest premiere at the Chicago Photography Center this coming Friday, October 7th. Sevigny has chosen works that reflect his often nomadic pathway through the big cities and small towns, often choosing images that show another side of Mexican life, a side that is sometimes sad, tragic, poignant and yet, delivers a sucker punch to the gut. His unscathing approach, revealing the underbelly of the lives of everyday Mexicans, not the glamorous resort 'fun in the sun' beaches or tourist areas, shows a more meaningful and thoughtful side of our southern neighbor which is going through some pretty chaotic and horrific times. Sevigny will be present at the reception , and will give a brief discussion on the work. Reception starts at 7pm.
